    Godspeed, friend. Mark, you always had a smile on your face, a joke in your pocket, and a plan with those fortunate to ride in your wake.

    A great loss for the ones who have had the pleasure of meeting and riding with him. His adventures of bush plane in Alaska, knowledge of the west and his passion for riding and exploring will be an inspiration to many.

    Godspeed Mark.

    As he leaves us behind, no one knows the adventure of what exists after this existance. A new adventure perhaps.
